    Alright you cunts :lool:

    I'm not sure if anyone is even still around but I just wanted to let you guys know a few things if you are.

    Over Xmas / Early next year I will be looking to move the site to complete OpenSource and also into AWS

    Why am I doing this?

    For a few reasons but primarily to save costs with existing hosting and also the forum software. Im fucked if Im paying £100 per year for support and with no support you don't get the latest releases. The move to new forum software will solve this. Internet forums in general are part of a dying breed anyway so it also makes sense to do this.

    Will things run slower?

    They shouldn't do but to be honest sizing is very much finger in the air. Hopefully it should perform well.

    What does it mean though?

    A few things will change
    • No history or database will be ported (probably not a bad thing ffs). So a complete clean start
    • You will need to re-register on the new forum if you can be arsed
    • None of the custom mods I developed (yep scores and stats) or any premium mods will work
    Should you give a fuck?

    Not really :lool: Im just letting you know. I'll move over the domain when I can but its worth noting that the site may only be accessible on its IP for a while. If this happens you can hit me up on the following (make a note if you can be arsed):

    Peace out

    Good originality on the choice of email address. Bet that took some thinking up.

    Nice that you're actually keeping this going, given it's only really populated by 4 people ;)

    :lool: Its all good man. More for nostalgic reasons and hanging around like a bad smell should anyone want to drop by.

    Just some other information.

    • This will be a complete reboot of the site
    • A more modern, clean and lightweight site (to get rid of all the bloat) and mods
    • No posts, history or user accounts will be ported (a clean start)
    • I will be combing United with some technology content
    • Some of this content will only be visible to users with a high enough trust level (this is earned)
    • The new site will be private (invite only) or you will need to create an account to see the content

    I'll also be automating some site promotion.

    Any questions just ask here.

    I 'll be pulling all the email addresses and just sending invites out to the likeable cunts mate. So, if Gavs email is on his account then yes.

    Also doesn't look like @Barney as a current email address logged. So you won't receive an invite mate unless you add one.

    Barney is so obviously a spoof account. No surprise it’s got no email.
    Nobody human is as madly delusional as that fucker comes across. I reckon he’s one of sherry’s accounts. Both seemingly disappear when their supposed teams are doing wank.

    That man has so many spoof accounts it's quite sad. Even this one is his attempt at being a tad smarter than normal.

    ;)

    Nar, won’t be Sherri, not if they’re active.

    He’s busy with family and stuff, which only coincidentally ties in directly with us being shite.
